On Jobs and Dreams

Ever since I started working a full-time magazine job, I’ve been passing out before 9 p.m. each night. I literally fall asleep as soon as my head hits the pillow, sometimes even skipping dinner in favor of extra snoozing. As a result, my DVR is full of shows to watch and...

Halloween Costumes for Grads

While it habitually snowed every Halloween on my college campus, not a soul was found wearing winter gear (unless we are counting Santa’s Sexy Helpers). While the ladies were as underdressed as possible (and by underdressed, I don’t mean Casual Fridays), the men resembled the mascots found on The Macy’s Thanksgiving...

Read a Feature

It’s hard enough to keep up with the 24-hour news cycle these days, let alone the preponderance of long features that you start out reading energetically but then turn the page to find there are 10 more pages. Now’s the time to get to the end, though—Friday afternoon is the perfect opportunity to pretend...

Mixology 101: Home Bartendting Basics

Have you ever seen a bartender produce a new cocktail on the spur of the moment, after a request for “a fruity rum drink, but not too sweet” or “something made with peppermint schnapps”? Like David Blaine, good mixologists aren’t actually magicians, thought it might seem...

On a cool fall day, there is nothing better than the smell of slow-cooked bratwurst, onions, and beer wafting through your small, musty apartment. It will remind you of the Midwest, where the women are a little heavy, but filled with a rare charm. Maybe that’s just me. But no matter...

Calling in Sick for Work

To call in sick or not to call in sick? There are times when this is somewhat of a moral quandary, and there are times when it is not. When you are legitimately ill, contagious, or have just broken one of your appendages, the choice is clear. By legitimately ill, I mean that...

How to Expose Your Roommate

When Al Gore invented the Internet, his primary goal was to provide people with a forum in which they could talk s—t about one another behind a veil of anonyminity. Craiglist, Gawker, HoodTalk.org (NSFW, m’goodnerds)…great sites all, and just a few of the reasons...

Backyard Tourism: San Francisco

From hipsters to history buffs to hippies in the buff, San Francisco’s got something for everyone. Best of all, plenty of fun can be had without breaking the bank.

Roundup: Beer, Music, and Gaming

Beer: The Building Block of Life

I’ve always been pretty intrigued by beer and soda bottle design. Often, I’ll order a Red Stripe just because the container feels like a small grenade in my hand, or I’ll choose a Virgin Cola over a Coke if I can get one of those...

Radiohead to Bring Back Napster?

No – it’s not what it sounds like. No time soon will pirated MP3 files be sailing effortlessly across the Interweb and into our iPods. But last week’s release of Radiohead’s newest CD, In Rainbows, has got the blogs (and even the Wall Street Journal) abuzz with speculation about the future of music...
